On November 1, 2020, the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians (OAFP) completed a virtual American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) endorsed Family Medicine Certification knowledge self-assessment (KSA) group study on Care of Children, one of several new KSA topics updated in 2020 by the ABFM.
Thank you to the Illinois, Indiana, New York, and Wisconsin chapters of the American Academy of Family Physicians for partnering with us on this unique program and new topic – it was a success!
With 135 physician learners, this cutting-edge program brought the complex issues of caring for children directly into the physician’s home or office with guidance from expert speaker Mary Krebs, MD, medical director of primary care at Cohere Health where her focus is to decrease administrative burden and improve patient experience. Family physician and OAFP member Melissa Jefferis, MD, FAAFP, moderated the session allowing attendees to offer input and ask questions when needed.
- 97% of attendees felt that the objectives of the program targeted their needs
- 98.5% said attendance was worth their time
- 99% said the program was well organized and requirements were well detailed
- 98.5% would participate in another virtual KSA session.
Thank you to all that participated! For physicians interested in attending a virtual KSA in the future, watch for updates from OAFP in 2021 for a winter virtual KSA and two fall virtual KSAs.
If you have any questions regarding the virtual KSA program or need assistance with your ABFM certification requirements, please contact Director of Foundation & Strategic Programs Kaitlin McGuffie or call 800.742.7327.
